Towards the end of the 19th century, India lay in a socio-political ferment. This led Maharishi Dayanand to form the Arya Samaj for the revival of the Indian society, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. With a call, "Back to Vedas", he gave the guiding principles of the Arya Samaj, in which the foremost was the spread of education. He believed, and rightly so that this would lead to an awakening throughout the length and breadth of the country.
The DAV Movement Emerges
To realize the Maharishi Dayanand dream a group of enlightened, dedicated and devoted followers with a deep sense of self denial, founded the Dayanand Anglo Vedic College trust and Management Society which was registered in 1886. The society founded it's first DAV school at Lahore in 1886 with Lala Hansraj(right) (Later known as Mahatma Hansraj Ji) as the honorary headmaster. Thus started the movement which right from the beginning was led by visionaries and patriotic men like Lala Lajpat Rai, Bhai Parmanand, Lala Dwarkadas, Principal Sen Das, Bakshi Ram Ratan, Bakshi Tek Chand and other like minded people. It blossomed into a unique institution, spread all over the country, emphasising the confluence of Indian thought and culture, with modern technology.
